Most of us will be doing (or at least buying) less this holiday season, but there's no reason to feel down about it. Less is good for your wallet, your spirit and certainly for the earth. Our plan is to take the subtitle of Anna Getty's book I'm Dreaming of a Green Christmas to heart - Gifts, Decorations, and Recipes That Use Less and Mean More.
Getty's book is filled with over sixty thoughtful decorating and craft projects (most incorporating elements from nature or repurposing things you already own), seasonal recipes and ideas for gifts to make and eco-friendly ways to wrap and present them. Peppered throughout are tips and reminders for making decisions that will have the least impact on the earth - using cloth napkins and tablecloths, your greenest shipping options, alternatives to plastic bottles and more.
